I know I'm personally going to be picking one of these up after work today. It's a great idea, Riot, and I really believe that despite the downvotes it's just a vocal minority, keep up with the good ideas.
Thank u DrVonDoom. i have been reading the comments and all people do is complain. this is not such a bad deal. its about a dollar per champ plus the yi skin (ew), but ur buddy wont know that. they'll be excited to play, and to get a head start with more champ options than other players. i dont see wat all this fuss is about. this game is for fun, u remember wat that is? probably not with so many people raging.

all im saying is that this is a good way to start on LoL. and then u can help teach them the rest. not only did u get them champs for starting to play, but it looks like u got urself a future partner...

For 5 bucks it really isnt all that bad. It's essentially a smurf package.

That are on free week every other week anyway? No. I would buy this all for two dollars at most.
Math is hard. $5.00 worth of RP is 650. The total RP value of the practical components of this bundle (so, discounting the Yi skin as unimportant.) is 3060 RP. How can you cry about that? How can you whine?! Remedial mathematics coursework is available at your local institute of higher learning.

Anybody with the gall to complain about this package not being tailored to them personally is a blithering idiot. This is a really nice little treat for new players at an extremely cost-effective price, and I'll definitely be grabbing one for my brother-in-law as a little bonus with his birthday present. Lay off the blind hate for Riot and try to see who this was actually intended for (hint: topic title).

I totally agree! thank you for not being such a MF'ing troll! this is a great way to spend 5 bucks and calling it a gift to a brand new player.

Who would EVER buy ANY of these champs with RP??? The champs may be 260 RP, but they are not worth that.

Well, even experts use Ashe every once in a while. Master Yi isn't so bad in the wrong hands either -_- all I'm trying to say is its a matter of prefrance. Plus, if your a noob your gonna be stoaked to get so much. (No I'm not a noob)
